A wonderful Brazilian species with flowers about 1.5" tall.
It is lovely!
very nice shape of flower!
That's pretty nice. Definitely not the same as what I'm growing as B. australis.
I've just had the identification confirmed and am confident of the name. What is yours like?
Oh, I'm not doubting your ID. I remember where I got my plant. The flowers of mine are kinda like prorepens. Vegetatively much different, though. But, even ugly orchids need a home.
I'll keep that in mind if I feel I need more bench space. I have your address.oke:
I have two species of luisia. Can't get much uglier than that, so ship away. My B. australis came from our Lebanese friend.
Dale, I have a piece of your plant too and I think it is B. handroi/cogniaxiana, at least it looks identical to my other B. cogniaxiana.
Nice one, Marni.
I have cogniauxiana. Can't say I'm really blown away by it, to be honest. I read someplace (maybe it was on this forum) where someone described its blooms as 'mucus on a stick'. Not altogether inaccurate.
I have called it "vaseline on a stick", but a good blooming makes it worth growing.
